How do I become a member?

SIGN UP FOR A MEMBERSHIP CLASS
The church is a place to belong, grow, and serve to the glory of God. Join us for our membership class, open to newcomers and those already active at UPC. Childcare is not provided during the class, but you are welcome to bring your children with you.

The next membership class will be Sunday, October 29, 12-2pm. Register below.

 Sign Up

 

MEMBERSHIP SUNDAY
If you decide to join, you will complete a registration form at the class and be welcomed into the UPC family during a "joining day" Sunday service with other new members. Membership Sunday happens twice a year in conjunction with the classes. You will learn about your joining day details when you attend the class.

BAPTISM
According to Presbyterian tradition, you need to be baptized to be a member of the church. If you were baptized earlier in life, or at a non-Presbyterian church, it still "counts." If you haven’t been baptized, you will be baptized as part of Membership Sunday.
